Never again!

 That year we had discussed it, the aroma was Banana, and true to form the BN smelled like a banana milkshake.

Yet another reason not to partake!

So much has been made out of this swill over the years that I have become deaf to all the sheeples around me who "ooh and ahh" about it coming every year here!

It's sold in plastic jugs down here to "lower" the price, as "bottles" weigh more and cost more to ship. I would be surprised one bit if the winos on the street wouldnt drink it either!

Wine lovers don't drink Beaujolais Nouveau. It's plonk.

A friend of mine from the Beaujolais region told me that every year the beaujolais nouveau producers exaggerate a particular aroma to almost comical levels in order to appeal to people who dont know how to appreciate good wine. That year we had discussed it, the aroma was Banana, and true to form the BN smelled like a banana milkshake. Not like "notes of banana and citrus" but full on milkshake. I havent tried this year's one (not going to spend money on that!) but it makes me curious what flavor they added to it this year

I had a glass of Beaujolais Nouveau once in Osaka. Well, I say "glass" but actually it was kind of a jug, with a handle. Chilled. Classy. I got it down, but only because I needed the alcohol.
